Sigma dont care what mount(dslr or M/L),if they can make it they will sell it.
Sigma may not care which mount, but they need to promote churn.

If no one switches mounts, chances are they will stay with their existing lenses. It's when people switch mounts that Sigma gets a big chance to sell more lenses. That's why Sigma and Tamron are claiming that the future is mirrorless because mirrorless is how they'll make the most money.

Of course Pentax doesn't - but this thread is about Canon, which probably does, especially since their excellent EF lineup gives them a running start.

Canon will be fine. If nothing else, they are the biggest camera brand and have a lot of other businesses to help support cameras if photography gear takes a down turn for a bit. I'm just pointing out that there is a general fallacy that it is enough just to drop a MILC on the market and your brand will gain market share.

It is a lot harder than that and the camera and the lenses have to be such that photographers see a clear benefit or their current gear (smaller size, faster frame rates, better video, whatever). I think that thus far, Canon and Nikon's mirrorless experience is mixed at best.
